Guide, taxidermist and wildlife sculptor, he has spent hundreds of hours annually in the field studying sheep habits. Frank is well known among professional hunters and taxidermists as a Dall sheep expert. In 2008 Frank received the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep “Guide of the Year” award. Frank Entsminger’s name is synonymous with the 40″ rams across Alaska. Frank has guided or assisted over 200 successful sheep hunts. 20% of these rams were 40″ or better. In 1974 when the Alaska Department of Fish and Game established the Tok Management Area, Frank was instrumental in developing public support for the trophy management concept. He has served for 30 years on the local fish and game advisory committee, including 10 years as chair, and currently continues to serve. For more information about Franks guiding activities go to
